Month of Phalgun

“The month of Phalgun brings pleasure unto whom the
Divine Friend has been revealed…

Every day, let us identify with the qualities of the One, who is beyond the effect of greed.
- Guru Granth Sahib, p.136

This Month

This month we celebrate the spirit of freedom as espoused in the vision on begampura by Bhagat Ravidas ji. We also commemorate the saka Nankana Sahib and Morca Jato, which reinforces the Sikh commitment to the spirit liberty in the annals of history.”

Although the sides (perfected individuals) aimed to influence Guru Nanak Sahib with their supernatural powers, he won them over by discourse.


I came to this event having thought in my mind to become a better Sikh and to find “Guru” within myself. This workshop by Mr. Harinder Singh was really beneficial in both and every aspect. He has not only helped me understand Sikhi and Guru, he has also helped to find that enlightenment within myself. The course which shapes around the basic thoughts and functionalities of Guru and Sikhism is really a nice venture and I would always be available to attend it anywhere and everywhere. I strongly recommend it to every Sikh and specially young kids to attend it and to be benefited from it. Thanks to Hardeep for inviting me and also thanks to Harinder Singh ji and Balmeet bro for every effort they put in.
